G.B. Smith’s photography journey began over 40 years ago as a teenager learning the fundamentals of the craft in the darkroom and with large plate cameras. This enthusiasm evolved into a first career as an industrial photographer in England.
This early interest in photography was matched by his passion for emerging communication technologies and entrepreneurship which eventually led him down a path of discovery and exploration in countries and cultures throughout the world. A truly global citizen, having lived on four continents and worked in six, he now resides in Maryland, USA and combines extensive global travel with a passion for Fine Art photography.
His subjects cover a wide range of natural and man-made structures often featuring interactions with water with long exposure images. His multiple award-winning images have been published in a wide range of media and he is a lifelong member of the Royal Photographic Society. [Official Website]
“I distill an image down to its uncluttered form and contrasts, seeking to highlight perceived patterns and flows. This is why I use black and white tonal contrasts and minimalist imagery, where less can serve to communicate more.”
The CALM HORIZONS collection has been curated over the past few years from visits to coastlines all over the world. “my intent was to capture the internal promise of bright and infinitely calming horizons where sky ultimately meets the sea.”
